Safe Frozen Pizzas?

I was wondering what pizzas anyone has found to be safe for PA, TNA and egg allergies. We have successfully used Bagel Bites 3 Cheese but have not deviated from that. I'm looking to give my daughter some variety!

My son eats Tombstone cheese and pepperoni constantly. Also eats Red Baron, Stouffers French Bread, and Bagel bites with pepperoni.

American specific, yes?

Totinos (made by General Mills) lists "Wheat, Milk and Soy" as their allergen statement. We have never had any problems. My son has a PN, TN allergy. Please don't take my word for it though that it is egg free. I don't see anything about egg in the ingredients, but I am not an expert in looking for egg/egg by-products.

I did call about the Bagel Bites - I forgot which company they fall under but it's one of the big ones that swears they list any allergens if applicable. My daughter loves them!

My PA dd eats DiGiorno all the time. I don't have one in the freezer right now to check about eggs though. She loves the cheese stuffed crust ones.

My son eats the Tony's individual pizzas. I believe I read on here somewhere that Tony's was a PN/TN free facility.We have had no problems with these.

My PA son eats Red Baron frozen pizza practically everyday! They have a few different choices, big, individual, or mini pizzas. He eats the plain cheese flavor and loves it!

I have a very strict comfort zone and a picky eater too!! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

we eat Freshettta brand...sorry, I don't have one handy to see if it contains egg, however, as I recall, they DO use 'allergy labeling'
hope that helps,

I called Freshettta brand's pizza today, they don't suggest us to use their product since they produce peanuts on the same line.

We used to use Kraft frozen pizza. However, I found a very quick pizza recipe with a simple crust, so now we use that instead. I posted it over in the Snacks & Recipes forum, labelled "Quick & Safe Pizza at Home," just in case anyone is interested.

They even have the bold allergy warnings on them for milk, soy and wheat. So I know they are allergy aware.

We are avoiding peanuts, tree nuts, egg and milk. We have been using Mama Mary's pizza crust (fresh in shelf stable package) and adding our own toppings. There is a 12" size and a personal size. The crust works well frozen, too.

I haven't called the company, but here are the ingredients:

Enriched flour, water, soybean oil, yeast, salt, dried honey, calcium proprionate, potassium sorbate, l-cysteine.

Just wondering about safe frozen pizza???
How can the Freschetta be peanut free pizza if they make the Thai style pizza which does contain peanuts according to the website???
Not condemning anyone, I'm just asking and wondering since we have used this brand before. Does anyone know any details about this???
The only thing I can think of is the peanut pizza is made in another facility. Has anyone called on this lately?

I just talked to someone at Freschetta and they assured me that both facilities that make their pizzas are now peanut & tree nut free. The customer service reps just recieved the memo about this last month. The thai peanut pizza was discontinued about 6 months ago - that is why they didn't used to be safe. Jennifer

Just a heads up for the egg allergic, Mama Mary's now has a warning, "manufactured on shared equipment with eggs".

my two local stores are replacing mama marys with longos. called longos and they said there may be problem with oil used to spray pans they cook crust in. probably will use pillsbury dough next. the freshetta is nut free now. talked to them last week.

mama marys are safe, i called company. you would think that boboli was safe too though just by reading it. i called boboli and they recommended i didnt use it. all my grocery stores are getting rid of mama marys though.

warning: [i]BAD MOMMY[/i] alert! I'm not recommending in any manner or form. I'm just stating what my own family's personal highly individual, and potentially unique situation. My family and I could be doing it all wrong.

We (*my family*) use some "Boboli" crusts, "Home Run Inn" cheese and four cheese and pepperoni, "Uno's" pepperoni and cheese, I think we tried some others, but I'm really funny about [i]garlic smell[/i] when they cook. Those are the one's the entire family can tolerate. (and we usually load up one of the Boboli's with "adult" toppings, including zuchinni and other greenery.) [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/tongue.gif[/img] Occasionally, we make our own crust, but what a mess! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]

Oh, and we use a certain brand and flavor of square bagels for "bagel pizza".

We also order from about 4 other pizza places. Saturday is usually pizza night in some form or other.

Anywhooooooooo, I could be taking a risk. Endangering. But personally, and not as advice to anyone else, *we* have no reason to change. It's working for us. I never found a reason to believe it wouldn't, either. Individual Mileage May Vary.

I could be wrong. doing it all wrong. KWIM?

I'm completely addicted to Tony's pizza! I use to buy the big, original crust pepperoni, but I'm the only one who eats it, so I buy myself a few personal pizzas each week. I blame this odd craving on pregnancy! *I usually hate pizza!*

Does anyone have contact info for Tony's? The camp my son is going to serves Tony's and Betzio's (totally safe, btw) and I want to confirm the latest on Tony's since there seem to have been some changes.

Their website seems to be down, so I can't get any contact info. Thanks all!

I called Tony's (Schwan's) 2 weeks ago because they were serving the individual personal size pizzas at a birthday party my girls were going to.
I was told that the personal size are made in a peanut/nut free facility. She did say that some of their foods are not made in peanut/nut free facilities and to call and check. There is a code on the side of the boxes that indicate the manufacturing plant which they will ask you for.

I don't know if these are "safe", according to other peoples standards, I just know my family eats them.

Gino's East (from the supermarket shelf and restaurant)

Red Barron

I know there are a few more, I just can't remember the names.

I'm definitely going to be calling about the Tony's. I ate them for a long time, then quit, then when I went to buy them, their labeling looked different, so I'm calling in the am.
